Be sure to read thru to get a new resource for affordable and interesting jewelry that I traveled thousands of miles to find.
You know how sometimes, okay many times, you have clothes that used to fit or are a bit snug and gathering dust in your closet waiting for another chance?
I certainly know that feeling, and it really stinks that the size we wear is likely not the same as it was a few, or many, years ago.
The good news is that there are some very important one size fits all things we can wear no matter what shape or size we may be.
Even though you already know them, be sure to choose interesting and flattering versions.
- Earrings – see the link below for inspiration.
- Necklaces – ditto regarding the below link.
- Scarves – Nordstrom, TJMax, and Marshalls have great selections.
- Shoes – get a few pairs that are more stylish than basic. Comfortable no longer means ugly.
- Handbags – get a bag in a fun color or print & stop wearing the bag that is worn down and dare I say, boring.
- Eyeglasses and/or sunglasses – in colors and shapes that compliment your facial features and outfits. See the great resource for those in the New Jersey area.
I mean let’s think about the following:
Waists tend to go out and in.
Size tends to go up and down.
But….the list above will still fit you with very, very few exceptions.
Below are a few new resources I found for you to take a look at.
I was seeking shelter during a typical brief rainstorm while exploring London, so I stepped inside the inviting store Oliver Bonas. They had tons of interesting jewelry that looks much more expensive than it is, and when I got home I discovered that they provide the option to buy their designs here in the U.S. via their website.
Below you can see me wearing the $38 necklace I bought and immediately wore. Since I stick to certain colors, it matched all the clothes I had packed for my trip to Europe.
P.S. When I showed it to my in the garment business husband, he thought it cost more than $100! BINGO!
Another great resource that one of my lovely clients introduced me to, is
Private Eyewear. They are based in New Jersey and depending on where you live or work, will come to you and help you select frames that flatter your face shape, features, and personal style.
Glasses are on our faces, so don’t lose sight, pun intended, on how important they are to your outfits and personal style.
There is one more surprise one size fits all accessory…
CONFIDENCE!!! The MUST HAVE ONE SIZE FITS ALL for all.
Confidence looks great on all and makes anyone who wears it, feel strong, brave, and ready for new challenges. The word even comes up quite often in testimonials.
See below for confidence Exhibit A.

Pssst…Overheard In The Dressing Room
I’m often asked: How do travel with only a carry-on. How do you do it?
Well, one of my tricks is that I take mini sizes of almost all toiletries and makeup.
One trick is that I put my foundation in a vial that was a sample from another product. It easily holds enough for a week.
But another is that I buy from Sephora.com vs. in the store itself because they offer great samples with online orders. These sample sizes and the mini products you get with their membership point system are fantastic.
Hair products, lipsticks, moisturizers, cleansers, etc are in tiny sizes and take up much less room than their full-size counterparts.
